1. Fuller, Stacey Lynn. An examination of job applicant favorability.

Degree: MA, Psychology (Industrial/Organizational Psychology, 2011, California State University – Sacramento

Interviewing job candidates is an important issue in organizations. Since individual interview style and interviewer biases can vary from interviewer to interviewer, different selection outcomes can occur. One method of controlling potential biases is to utilize structured interviews in lieu of more loosely based unstructured interviews. In this study, participants (N = 142) were given a resume of a fictional job applicant, a photograph of that represented an attractive or a unattractive fictional candidate, a fictional job description, and one of two sets of both vignettes and interview transcripts that represented different levels of interview structure. Participants then responded to items regarding their favorability of the fictional candidate. Results of the data indicated a statistically significant main effect of both interview structure and candidate attractiveness on favorability ratings. These results indicate that both candidate attractiveness and level of interview structure can have an effect on applicant favorability in job interviews. Advisors/Committee Members: August, Rachel.
